In cheese conversion shredded cheese and anti-clumping agents are metered into a rotating coating drum wherein individual cheese strands are uniformly coated to prevent particle agglomeration in packaging. Thayer Scale’s Hygienic Weigh Feeders (HWF) accurately measure the rate of flow of shredded cheese based on the direct measurement of mass and velocity variables. Its proprietary, easy-to-clean Loss-in-Weight feeder technology is used to assure precise, reliable delivery of the anti-clumping agents to a single-point or uniformly across a wide band.
